CGB Students Test Better Than National Average
Those tests that the teachers tell you to do your best on, like PLAN and EXPLORE, actually matter!
This year’s test results show that our CGB eighth graders had higher results on the EXPLORE test in
the areas of English, Math and Science than students in the rest of the country! Sophomores took the PLAN
test and they did better than other sophomores nationally in English, Math, Science and Reading!
So, everybody keep up the great work and the next time you’re facing one of those long, boring tests,
remember it is just another opportunity to show what a great school we have!

Boys Sports Summary
On Tuesday the basketball boys played the Ortonville Trojans in Ortonville. It was a
hard game for the boys and, unfortunately, they came up short with a score of 70-23. The boys
played hard but the size of the Ortonville Trojans was a huge factor in the game. They will take
on the Battle Lake Battlers tomorrow in Battle Lake. Battle Lake has been extremely good the past few years
so it will be a hard game for the boys. Make sure you go to the game; the fan support can make a big difference!
Today the wrestlers head to Osakis for a dual. The boys went 3 in 4 on Saturday at Milbank. They
won against Milbank, Sisseton and (). Due to bad weather, we postponed the match against Kimball.
